sea of hands

Studying sculpture in Semester 2, students have worked with a variety of media and techniques including hand building with clay. The study of hands occupies an entire term, as an anatomical study using clay and, as an extension in graphic design using digital media. Students are encouraged to work from a symbolic perspective as hands have often been used in artworks and advertising to represent freedom, empathy, charity, a life force and human emotion.
